Your David Letterman Netflix special is almost here: ‘David Letterman: My ISIS Chat’ debuts this Friday

A select group of subscribers got a little taste of David Letterman’s new Netflix stand-up special on Thursday, but the rest of the world will have to wait until a few days from now to see the latest from one of late-night’s most enduringly likable hosts.

Letterman: My ISIS Chat — a sort of analysis of the ISIS abductions and killings that occurred in the Middle East during the Obama administration — will make its streaming debut on Friday at 12:01 a.m. PDT, Netflix announced on Twitter.

What makes the special unique is that it will include Letterman interviewing current and former members of ISIS (something the terrorist group has been reluctant to do in the past). His questions are diverse and provocative: “I’ve always said that Hitler represented the essence of evil — when you ask an enemy of America what they think of the American president, do they still have respect for him?”

In a way, what Letterman does with the subject matter in his special is an opportunity to get into a conversation with a real-life terrorist. It’s not quite the same as interviewing a bunch of political and religious figures, but then again, what would be the point?

More than a quarter-century after the “Late Show” made Dave Letterman one of the most successful late-night hosts in TV history, he’s at last finding his footing on a digital platform for the first time.
